Undercabinet coffee maker? Anyone using one?

Has anyone installed an undercabinet coffee maker in their trailer or RV?

Like this - https://www.amazon.com/BLACK-DECKER-.../dp/B00UL3JPC0

My wife hates having to pack away the coffee maker every trip.

Is it secure enough you can go down the road with the carafe in it?

We don't have an under counter in the 5er, but we have one at home in the garage and an on counter one in the 5er, but the carafe will not stay in the on counter one. It always goes in the cabinet and the coffee maker stays on the counter.

I'm thinking about getting one because of our lack of counter space. But I would definitely store the carafe while traveling.

Used to have an old under cab B&D model in our previous RV. Was great, saved counter space and left the carafe in as the model we had enclosed it. When it broke down, the only B&D available was like the one you're looking at. We found it far bigger than the old one and finally got a Kg. Put it on a little rubber mat in the corner of the counter and it never moves while travelling. Does not take up much room.

We had one in our first RV. It was the bomb!!! Unfortunatly our new RV didn't have space to install it so we had to let it go when we sold the first. We would absolutely have one if we could find a place for it. Don't hesitate.

Two negatives come to mind. Some RV's have a void space under the cabinets that contain wiring for lights etc. That void space has a thin piece of paneling to hide the wires, paneling will not support a coffee maker. Second issue a lot of moisture is created by a coffee maker, moisture and wood do not mix well.

We used two of the old style B&D coffee makers over the years. When our last unit died there was no B&D replacement at that time. Since then they have come out with the model that you are looking at. We have no experience with the new model but my wife loved the old style unit in our old RV. As I remember we removed the carafe for travel.

We have a B&D coffee maker in our house. It has the stainless steel
carafe (not glass). We looked at the under counter B&D model several
times for our trailer but at the time we had trouble with other B&D products so took a pass. I have seen on this forum someone wrapped
a piece of Velcro around the under counter unit & the carafe & had no
troubles.

We put one in our first TT - big mistake! The first time we took the TT out, none of the electricity worked on that side of the TT. No lights, no power, nada. Turns out, there were wires running under the cabinet, as noted by edcronin01, and we just happened to drill through one when installing the coffee maker. Turned out to be a $142 coffee pot.
